EU And UK In Another Spat Over Expat Rights

The US has signalled it could exempt certain countries from planned steel and aluminium tariffsMore

A series of speeches by May and her senior ministers have done little to satisfy Brussels, and Juncker warned it was particularly crucial for London to clarify its plans for the sensitive issue of the Irish border.

That comment elicited repeated shouts of "It's a British issue sir", from UKIP member David Coburn.

Britain has said it expects the transition period to last around two years after its departure date, although the European Union has said it should end earlier, on December 31, 2020.

Responding to their applause, he said the time would come "when you will regret your decision".

He added: "For the moment, it is not unlikely that the negotiations will end up with a bad result, a bad result for the European Union but worse for the UK".

A draft joint position from the remaining 27 European Union members, seen by Reuters ahead of its official publication later today, said the bloc was determined to foster a close partnership with Britain.

"The EU is bullying us", he said, before urging Theresa May "to do what Trump has done and stand strong against the European Commission, against the unelected bullies". If you chose to jettison, leave behind, the common agreements and rules then you have to accept that things can not remain what they are ...

Mr Tusk said the lack of a solid outline of the future EU-UK relationship, incorporating the Irish Border, was hampering progress thus far.

If border posts return to Northern Ireland they will be attacked, according to the Taoiseach.

He also defended an European Union proposal for the bloc to continue to regulate trade in the British province of Northern Ireland after Brexit, should no other ways emerge to avoid a hard border between that territory and the country of Ireland.

'We are monitoring the situation as the negotiations unfold and look forward to receiving additional clarity at the March council, ' said Honda's European government affairs manager Patrick Keating.

The European Union would make the point before EU leaders meet at a summit on March 22-23 that the EU was a long-standing and trusted security partner of the United States and thus not a threat to national security and that the Pentagon only needed 3 percent of US annual steel production to serve its needs.

When one MEP shouted "it is a British issue", Mr Juncker shot back: 'It is all for one and one for all, that is what it means to be part of this union'.

Delivering a damning verdict on May's speech, the Parliament's Brexit coordinator Guy Verhofstadt said, "It is mainly repeating the red lines that we know already two years".

European Union leaders have been pressing British Prime Minister Theresa May to clarify what she wants before they agree their position on the future economic partnership at a summit later this month.

"You can not have the rights of Norway and then the obligations of Canada".

But it insists on a "binding interpretation role" for the European Court of Justice (CJEU) and rejects United Kingdom efforts to "cherry-pick" single market access for particular sectors, such as the financial services industry.

The draft, which must get Britain's consent if there is to be a Brexit deal, will make agreements on the financial settlement, citizens' rights, the Irish border and a transition period legally binding.
